Each fighter starts off the round with ten hit points. Every strike that connects removes one hit points. If the player successfully strikes the opponent ten times, he advances to the next opponent. If the opponent strikes the player ten times, the player loses one life. The game is over when the player loses all of his lives.
The player can punch and kick in various ways, depending on what direction the joystick is held in. The player can also jump up or diagonally over his opponent. He can only attack at the very beginning of the jump and at no time after. Two players can only play in an alternating fashion.
